Top Character Strengths
KINDNESS - PERSPECTIVE - GRATITUDE
What character strength do you value the most and why?
The character strength I value most is gratitude. I believe it’s important to approach each day with a sense of gratitude, not only for our blessings, but for the failures that teach us and help us grow. Reflecting on what I’m most grateful for helps me to gain perspective and see the positivity and beauty in things and people.
How do your top character strengths support your work at TMF?
I enjoy the sense of camaraderie and community that comes so naturally to those who have served or whose loved ones have served. By fostering connections between veterans, their loved ones, and inspired civilians, we create a network of support that extends beyond ourselves and leaves a positive legacy that unites communities.
What do you enjoy most about working with veterans, survivors, and inspired civilians?
I believe that my character strength of gratitude helps me to frame my purpose and gain perspective. I learn by taking the time to listen to and consider the perspectives of others and consider this especially vital to my role at TMF which requires me to be a liaison between people and social impact. Perspective allows me to communicate effectively, which is vital to my role in Development. Lastly but certainly not least, kindness is imperative to making a difference. I try to lead with compassion in everything I do.
